Milwaukee, WI – The following statement was released by Business Manager Dean Warsh of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), Local 494 in regard to Collectivo Coffee Roasters decision to file a review of the Regional Director’s decision with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB):
“Colectivo Coffee Roasters decision to now file with the NLRB in Washington D.C and request an additional review of the workers fairly decided union election result, is just another delay and obstructive tactic to slow down and stop the will of their workers to form a union”, said Business Manager Dean Warsh.
“Twice now, it has been decided that the will of the workers was soundly expressed, and the objections have been overruled. We are so proud of the workers at Colectivo Coffee, who have taken a bold step towards ensuring every employee is given fair treatment and shown the dignity that they deserve in their work” continued Mr. Warsh.
“We at IBEW Local 494 continue to call on the ownership and management to stop stalling and join us and the workers at the bargaining table to negotiate a fair and equitable contract. May Colectivo Coffee Roasters word be as strong as their coffee.”
